Dear Linda M, Thank you so much for your kind review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your time at Ngala Beach Lodge! In response to your valid comments: Food prepration times depend on menu item, nearly all our food is homemade and freshly prepared, being cooked to order, but apologies if this took a little longer than expected. Skyband Malawi provides the internet service at Ngala, we feel they offer the fastest and most reliable service, we charge according to there pricing structure. They do offer our customers 250MB of data daily, free of charge when using your Facebook account to log on. We are looking forward to getting low cost, high speed internet in Malawi soon (-: We really hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels and can make it back to visit us again one day! Kind Regards, Dan & Trish
